Florence: Medici Dynasty History Museum Ticket

1. Florence: Medici Dynasty History Museum Ticket

The Museo de' Medici - located in one of the most extraordinary buildings in the city - is the place to discover the history of the most famous dynasty in the world. From Lorenzo the Magnificent to the Electress Palatine, the memory of Casa Medici is preserved and handed down here through the exhibition of precious collections of works of art, historical relics, original documents, faithful reconstructions and multimedia installations. Visiting the Medici history museum in Florence is also an opportunity to discover an extraordinary monument: the Rotonda Brunelleschi. Designed and begun by the most famous architect of the Renaissance, the Rotunda remained incomplete from 1437 for five hundred years. This extraordinary place, modeled on the Roman Pantheum, was part of the most important humanistic library of the time, frequented by Cosimo the Elder, Lorenzo the Magnificent and Leo X. Later Cosimo I, Grand Duke, wanted to make it the first seat of the Academy of Arts and of the Drawing and, in the nineteenth century, the sculptor Enrico Pazzi sculpted the famous statue of Dante today in Piazza Santa Croce. Finally reopened to the public after twenty years of closure, the Rotonda now houses the precious collections of the Museo de' Medici.

Superb museum that immerses us in the history of the Medici. I really recommend taking the visit with the audio guide, which makes the visit more comprehensive and richer. We discover their history from genesis to their decline. Each member has his story, his specificity. We have adored !

Very nice museum. Audio-guide on the phone that adapts to the spoken language. Very warm welcome. I recommend !

A small and charming museum. The guided tour using QR codes worked well. Enlightening about the Medici family.

Me gusto la actividad , es un museo pequeño pero muy informativo en cuanto a la vida de los Medici

Easy to organize for a little known but interesting museum
